IniWriteSection Bug?

2 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Uggggg... an hour wasted and I've made no progress.

Simply: I'm trying to write down the FileOpenDialog (Browse button) path in an .ini file.

Case $Buttonb1
                Global $fileNames = FileOpenDialog("Choose your Names text file...", @WorkingDir, "Text files (*.txt)", 1+4)
                If @error Then
                    MsgBox(0, "", "No File(s) chosen - you MUST PICK A FILE")
                Else
                    MsgBox(0, "", $fileNames)
                EndIf

Case $ButtonCreateProject
  MsgBox(0,"", $fileNames)
                IniWriteSection("scheduler22222.ini", GUICtrlRead($InputProjectName), "Comments Per Day="& $InputCommentsPerDay & @LF & "Stop After Days="& $InputStop & @LF & "Names File="& $fileNames)

Things I've tested/debugged:

1. The MsgBox above my IniWriteSection is displaying the proper path everytime - nothing wrong about it.

2. I've manually put in "Names File = C:file.txt" -- and it writes that down properly.

3. String($fileNames) [just in case] - no result

There's nothing else to test :/. It works flawlessly with everything else, it's not my parameters inside the writing, and it's not the characters in the path (C:path.txt works).

Any ideas? :)

Edit:

It does not even create the ini file. I see the 'Failure' remarks in the help file says the data format is incorrect, but the data is the EXACT same thing as to when I manually input it -- and it's working with other variables such as the "Comments Per day".

This is NOT a bug, read the remark in FileOpenDialog...

@WorkingDir is changed on successful return.

Therefore using IniWrite("FileName.ini"...) will write to the directory of what @WorkingDir is currently set as. Therefore use @ScriptDir in an addition to the filename e.g.

IniWrite(@ScriptDir & "FileName.ini"...)
Also make sure you have permission to write to that directory too.

Edit: What is this for exactly?
